Was told I could cancel within 6 months for a FULL REFUND of my $75. Couldn't talk to a person and got only $6 back. Crappy company. Add comment

They hook you into a few free issues then bill you for the subscriptions. When u try to cancel it takes 3 months for a refund. Automated system- impossible to talk to a real person. Add comment

I stopped receiving my magazines in January, when my subscription does not expire until July. When I call these people they said that my payment wouldn't go through. First, why are they trying to bill me in January for a subscription that doesn't expire until July? Second, why didn't they contact me about not being able to get payment? I could've told them that my debit card had expired and I got... Read more

I never received this "notice of renewal" and this company... Read more

This company sucks. They are supposed to send you a notice when they are going to charge your account for continued subscription service, but I never got one. Thank goodness I checked my bank statement today because they are charging $35 for a magazine I can get elsewhere for $12! Then, after being badgered by the automated phone system for a while (Are you sure you want to cancel? How about... Read more
